The Christ That Can Be Named Is Not The Eternal Christ

If i have any discernment, which i think i do, i can distinguish between what is offensive and what i imagine is offensive.  I can also distinguish what is meant to offend from what is merely limitations on our ability to communicate cross-culturally.  And just because we were raised in the same household or church or country does not necessarily mean we share a culture.  So instead of dismissing or condemning what anyone says, i will try to listen for the truth that that person did not know she or he spoke and hope that person will do the same for my babbling.
